Respighi - Church Windows, II: St. Michael the Archangel
performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra with Geoffrey Simon conducting

I love the dark hours of my being
in which my senses drop into the deep.
I have found in them, as in old letters,
my private life, that is already lived through,
and become wide and powerful now, like legends.
Then I know that there is room in me
for a second huge and timeless life.
Rainer Maria Rilke, from A Book for the Hours in Prayer, trans. Robert Bly (via proustitute)
